Blizzard has not dropped their legendary title which brought in a large fanbase

The game servers were first announced at Blizzcon 2017 to counteract many unlicensed servers that rose in popularity around that time – satisfying the hunger for loyal fans looking to liven up the good old memories.

Now that Blizzard has decided to answer the call from players, since May 15, selective players will be invited to a closed beta test with a small volume of participants. Later on, there will be three larger stress-tests from May through to July.

The schedule may change a bit, but the timeline of stress test dates is as follows:

  • Stress Test 1: Wed May 22–Thurs May 23
  • Stress Test 2: Wed Jun 19– Thurs Jun 20
  • Stress Test 3: Thurs Jul 18– Fri July 19

Currently, Blizzard is leaving the submission for the beta test open for players to register in the game. Players who wish to participate in the beta will need to sign up through their accounts. However, it is still up to Blizzard to choose who would be best suited to attend the test. It is highly recommended that players should have an active subscription to get qualified. Also, It requires many more to be recognized as "dedicated" fans who truly deserve the privilege.

Epic characters and scenes sure bring back memories. The rewinding of many iconic events is like the sign of bringing back good old days

Also, Blizzard has scheduled to let players claim their names of characters early. The feature will be available on August 13, with the limit of 3 characters for each account. However, to claim their characters as well as their names, they will have to be selected by Blizzard through a list of criteria.
